The center will also have staff from the Small Business Administration (SBA), both organizations are providing financial assistance to flood victims.

Officials with FEMA want residents to know what they need to bring to make sure applications are processed smoothly.

Angela Byrd, Media Relations Specialist with FEMA said those in need of assistance should bring documentation that helps to identify them such as Social Security Cards, Driver's licenses, and other state identification.
